Abstract: Brief excerpt from interview: Our students are learning to conduct assessments, and part of the assessment process is doing a bio-psycho-social. And what that means is that they are trying to learn to attend to the environmental conditions. What I built into the case . . . in every scenario, to fail to attend to racial and ethnic factors, to fail to attend to issues of age, and maybe most importantly and sometimes missed, failure to attend to place will mean that the intervention strategies won't work. They simply won't. And I built that in intentionally knowing that our students typically have strong sense of place.
